Atlantis, the Antediluvian World

By: Ignatius Donnelly

Description: Atlantis: The Antediluvian World is a book published during 1882 by Minnesota populist politician Ignatius L. Donnelly, who was born in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania during 1831. Donnelly considered Plato's account of Atlantis as largely factual and attempted to establish that all known ancient civilizations were descended from this supposed lost land. Many of its theories are the source of many modern-day concepts we have about Atlantis, like the civilization ...

By: Frederick S. Oliver

The Story of Atlantis, a Geographical, Historical and Ethnological...

By: W. Scott-elliot

Description: Atlantis (in Greek, Ἀτλαντὶς νῆσος, island of Atlas) is the name of a legendary island first mentioned in Plato's dialogues Timaeus and Critias. In Plato's account, Atlantis, lying beyond the pillars of Heracles, was a naval power that conquered many parts of Western Europe and Africa 9,000 years before the time of Solon, or approximately 9500 BC. After a failed attempt to invade Athens, Atlantis sank into the ocean in a single day and night of misfortune. ...

Atlantida L'Atlantide, Score Atl Ant

By: Pierre Benoit

Description: This French novel of 'Atlantis in the Sahara' made a huge splash when it was published. The exotic Saharan setting, the stories of desert survival, the overpowering allure of the last Queen of Atlantis, make a memorable, if a bit pulpy, read.

Vril, the Power of the Coming Race

By: E. Sir Bulwer-lytton

Description: Legendary for his turgid prose (it was a dark and stormy night...) Bulwer-Lytton's pioneering science fiction novel Vril was taken very seriously by 19th Century Atlantis fans (for instance, Scott-Elliot). Vril is a mysterious energy which is used by Lytton's subterranian race (refugees from the Deluge) to power their advanced civilization; it was later treated as a reality by occultists. The plot of this book was recycled for numerous 'B' pulp scifi movies ...

The Lost Continent, Score Atl Tlc

By: Cutcliffe Hyne

Description: This lively Victorian-era Atlantis story is one of the best of the genre, per Lin Carter, Sprague de Camp, and others. However, IMHO, naming the principal character Deucalion in an Atlantis story is sort of giving away the ending. Hyne's Atla

Oriental Mysticism

By: E. H. Palmer

Description: The Universe is the mirror of God, and the heart of man is the mirror of the Universe.--p. 41 This is a concise study of the key concepts of Sufi philosophy, written by a western scholar in the mid-19th century. Palmer discusses the spiritual journey that Sufis take, the path to oneness with God. A very useful feature of this book is the glossary of poetic symbols used in Persian Sufi literature. Palmer also translated the Qur'an for the Sacred Books of the East in two volumes.

Influence of the Phallic Idea in the Religions of Antiquity

By: Wake, C. Staniland

Description: The first step in the inquiry is to ascertain the origin of the superstition in question. Faber ingeniously referred to a primitive universal belief in a great father, the curious connection seen to exist between nearly all non-Christian mythologies, and he saw in phallic worship a degradation of this belief. Such an explanation as this is, however, not satisfactory; since, not only does it require the assumption of a primitive divine revelation, but proof i...
